Dir. Fritz Lang. Germany, 1928. 2h 23m. Starring Rudolf Klein- Rogge, Gerda Maurus, Lien Deyers, Louis Ralph, Craighall Sherry, Willy Fritsch, Lupu Pick.

Easily the best known and most successful of the filmmakers to emerge from the Weimar cinema, Fritz Lang’s sense of spectacle elevated genre cinema to the level of art. Rarely screened today, Lang's silent epic established the rules of all film noir to come.

‘The action is endlessly inventive, the eroticism still powerful…the film’s editing and dramatic use of space remain astonishing.’ Philip French, The Guardian

‘The tone is somewhere between true pulp fiction and pure expressionism, and the result remains wholly thrilling.’ Ton Rayns, Time Out
